In ASP.NET 3.5., after changing the generated DetailsView (or GridView) to templates for particular fields, I can set the MaxLength for textboxes. How can I set the MaxLength in the code behind? Ultimately, I desire to set the MaxLength from the length of the field on the database, perhaps via GetSchemaTable method.
